We are living in crazy times. Life as we know it has been turned upside down by the Corona Virus. Our hurting world is desperate for Jesus, and the life-giving wisdom contained in the scriptures. Which is why I loved my conversation on By His Grace this week with Daniel Grothe. He is a lover of Jesus and a pusurer of wisdom. We have a fantastic conversation about pursuing wisdom in a chaotic world.
Daniel is a pastor at New Life Chrurch in Colrado Springs. During his time at New Life, he has lived through some life changing events from a moral failure of the Senior Pastor that splintered the church to a crazed gunman shooting two teenagers and committing suicide in front of the Children’s Ministry. Daniel has learned how to deal with significant challenges by drawing upon Scripture and his experience learning from his friend and mentor Eugene Peterson.
Daniel inspires us to seek wisdom, and shows us how to get wisdom for ourselves by examining what the Bible has to say about it. Including practical steps for acquiring it, such as:
- learning to ask for help
- loving Scripture
- going to Church
- living quiet
- seeking those who are themselves wise
Daniel Grothe is a pastor at New life church, a husband, and father of three who lives on a hobby farm just outside of Colorado Springs. His new book Chasing Wisdom: The Lifelong Pursuit of Living Well is available for pre-order now and launches April 21, 2020.
